Expert Tips

Pork is a good food source of iron. Iron helps build red blood cells to carry oxygen through the body.

The fire in this recipe comes from the black pepper and the red pepper flakes. For less heat, reduce either one of these ingredients a bit.

To make the marmalade easier to stir and spread, microwave it on High for 10 to 15 seconds.
